Chief Executive Officer's Welcome

Welcome to The Gryphon Trust.

We are an educational charity and company limited by guarantee on 1st April 2011 by the then governing body of The Arnewood School. At this time it felt appropriate to make the school a multi academy trust with a focus on the future.

The Trust was developed by converting The Arnewood School, a mixed non-selective secondary school and sixth form, formally a Foundation School with Technology College status controlled by Hampshire County Council, into an 11 to 19 Academy.

On 21st December 2015 the name of the multi-academy trust was changed from The Arnewood School Multi Academy Trust to The Gryphon Multi Academy Trust. The change in name was to give the Trust a clear separate identity to enable it work with likeminded partners who hold similar values and ambitions to the trust’s. Following a two year trial in-house we were successful in being able to open The Eaglewood School, as an Alternative Provision school for 7 – 16 year olds, initially established as a Free School.

We have a Trust Development Plan which sets clear aims for the trust and gives it a sense of future direction that we intend should benefit all Gryphon Trust stakeholders.
